Ready, Set, Action!: Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile video showcase and tips

Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile speeds up and stabilizes your videos into smooth and exciting movies. We’ve searched the Web to see how you’re using it; check these out.

If, like me, you’ve never been to Switzerland but would like to see what it’s like to drive through the beautiful country, Veeo Me‘s video gives us a glimpse–captured with a Lumia 1020.

Roth Sothy created his own soundtrack for this “tubing” video, which complements the activity nicely–captured with a Lumia 1020.

As America’s first and oldest man-made attraction, the Mt. Washington Auto Road offers breathtaking views for miles around as it meanders through the landscape.

Matt Hewitt used his Lumia 640 to capture his descent.

Another driving tour now, this time in Lofoten, Norway–courtesy of Pappablomst on a Lumia 640.

Hyperlapse videos don’t necessarily have to be moving or adrenalin-filled. They can simply capture the passing of time, such as this one from EvoTube 92–taken with a Lumia 1320.

While Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile runs on your phone, Microsoft Hyperlapse Pro is ideal for video aficionados who want to turn their videos captured from other devices (read: GoPro) into smooth movies via a PC.

Now that you’ve seen some examples of Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile, download the app onto your Lumia–for free.

Top tips

While Hyperlapse makes every effort to remove all the shakes and judders from your footage, the less jerky your movements, the smoother your movie will be.

Think about timing. Because Hyperlapse speeds up what you’ve captured, what might start off as a one-minute video can end up being only 15 seconds long if you select the 4x option.

Other speeds available are:

  • 1 x
  • 2 x
  • 4 x
  • 8 x
  • 16 x
  • 32 x

Share your video for the world to see! Whether you’ve captured yourself wingsuit-flying through craggy mountains, mountain biking through the woods, or cycling to work, we’d love to see it.

You can share it in the comments section below. Alternatively, if you share your Hyperlapse video on social accounts or video channels be sure to include the #MSHyperlapse and #Lumia tags.

We look forward to seeing your creations.
